"We're going to China! We're going to China! I Feel So Happy!"

That's right!  We're singing the words that Kai Lan and her friends sing in "Kai Lan's Great Trip to China."  We're also singing "God is So Good!"  We have gotten TA and CA!  Many of you are wondering just what that means. 

TA stands for Travel Approval.  China has given us TA--Travel Approval to buy tickets and go to China to get Andrew. 

CA stands for Consulate Appointment.  We have an appointment with the American consulate in Guangzhou China to get Andrew's visa that will allow him to enter the US.  (He will become a US citizen as soon as we land in the US.)  Our CA is set for June 5.

So when do we meet Andrew?   We should meet him on Monday, May 28.  We are hoping to leave May 22, but we've had a little trouble getting tickets; so, we're still not sure of our itinerary. 

God has been so good to us and we thank Him for all of you who have come along on this adventure with us.  It's about to get exciting.  Thank you all for your prayers.  Please continue to pray for everyone's transition as we face a lot of changes.

We'll write more later...

Hi Lois,

I met you and your lovely family when Lily was visiting from China and we all met at the restaurant to see her. I sat right behind you at a different table and had my two girls with me. I would love to follow along your journey in China to get Andrew. Will you be updating this blog on your trip?

We got back with my son, Harris, on March 16. It was a great trip and Harris has adjusted so wonderfully.

Hope all your travel plans are working out smoothly!
